Menachem Binyamin Zivotofsky, By His Parents and Guardians, Ari Z. and Naomi Siegman Zivotofsky, Petitioner v. John Kerry, Secretary of State

Docket No., 13-628

Question Presented:

Whether a federal statute that directs the Secretary of State, on request, to record the  birthplace of an American citizen born in Jerusalem as born in "Israel" on a Consular Report of  Birth Abroad and on a United States passport is unconstitutional on the ground that the  statute "impermissibly infringes on the President's exercise of the recognition power reposing exclusively in him."
